I have to admit this is a sports article that I simply do not want to write. However, my gut instinct is telling me the Seattle Seahawks are going to be the victors of the next Super Bowl upon the dawn of 2017. Yes, despite me being a lifelong Broncos fan, I have come to the conclusion they will not repeat as Super Bowl champions. There are a number of reasons why I think the Broncos will not win the next Super Bowl and why Seattle just might do it. These factors encompass both teams, including some characteristics on the Seahawks and some dealing with the Broncos. Consider the following.

First of all, they are not as injury plagued. Last year at this time, Earl Thomas was going through an off-season shoulder surgery and Richard Sherman was going through a strict rehabilitation regime. They were definitely a banged-up crew and it definitely affected their ability to compete on the field. Thomas actually played the first few games of last season in a brace and did not look like his perennial Pro Bowler he is until several games into the season.

Second, another good reason why I think the Seahawks just might compete for Super Bowl LI would be because this year there are no contract holdouts. Last year, Michael Bennett was very adamant that he wasn’t happy with his contract. Kam Chancellor not only was unhappy with his contract, but he surprised everyone by holding out for all of the preseason, and even a couple games into the season.
